Forest Baptist Church needs a construction team to renovate 4 bathrooms at the church.
NOTE FROM THE CHURCH: For a number of years now the four bathrooms at Forest Baptist Church (FBC) have not met the needs of the church and do not meet current codes. They have been ‘grandfathered’ due to the church’s historical significance in the Newburg area of Louisville (153 years). On several occasions attempts have been made to initiate upgrades but more pressing needs always seemed to interfere with, delay or supersede the efforts.
Obviously adequate bathrooms are an integral part of any structure that serves the public and we have viewed our bathrooms as a major hindrance to our outreach efforts for a number of years. In short their condition hinders us in every way imaginable. During 2018 and 2019 we enlisted the services of an architect to provide us with a comprehensive plan for expansion and renovation. It was for planning purposes only. Prominently mentioned by the membership as being of paramount importance were the bathrooms. The financing of any part of the plan submitted by the architect was a challenge. We’re not destitute but we managed to stay afloat during the worst periods of the pandemic. Correspondingly, any thought of renovation and expansion during this time has been put on hold indefinitely but a strategic partnership between KBC and FBC might just be able to solve this situation. A comprehensive diagram of the architect’s rendering is available.
